TAILOR/TAYLOR, Thomas Laurence
Father, gramps, Dieppe survivor, PoW, humanitarian. Born March 3, 1914, in Calgary. Died June 22 in Ottawa of pneumonia, aged 93.
By Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR, Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR and Joann MAPLESDEN, Page L8
Tommy was a gentleman - he looked just as distinguished in a business suit as he did in overalls sitting on a tractor at his Beaver Valley, Ontario, farm.
Tommy was the second son of Edmund and Edna TAILOR/TAYLOR. At 12, he went to Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario In 1929 his father died suddenly; Tommy continued his education with support from the school and the parents of his roommates.
A natural athlete and leader, he captained hockey, football and cricket teams. He later became one of the school's life governors and was the first president of the alumni association he helped establish.
In May, 1933, Tommy began working for Manufacturers Life Insurance Co., calculating mortgages by hand. In 1940 he joined The Royal Regiment of Canada, and in 1942 was shipped to England as a lieutenant with the Second Division to begin training for Operation Jubilee - the Dieppe raid.
On August 19, Tommy led his men across the stony beach. Of the 35 men, he was the only one to survive the horrific climb to the top. He took shrapnel in his leg, and, out of ammunition, he and a group of artillery men took cover until nightfall and eventual capture. Tommy endured three years at Oflag VIIB, a PoW officers camp in Bavaria.
Back in Toronto, Tommy rejoined Manulife. He married Mary Helen RENNIE and had three children, Joanne, Virginia and Tom. Tommy was instrumental in expanding Manulife's real-estate portfolio throughout North America and England. He retired from the company after 42 years but remained active in the investment field with McLeod Young Weir Ltd.
The war years had a marked effect on Tommy; he worked through his demons by helping others. His years of compassionate contribution to Renascent House helped others who fought alcoholism.
Tommy always had a cheerful greeting for everyone. His later years were spent in his "beloved Beaver Valley," where he had an active social life and embraced his seven grandchildren. With a twinkle in his eye, he endeared himself to people.
After Helen's death in 2001, Tommy was cared for at the Perley and Rideau Veterans' Health Centre in Ottawa. He passed away peacefully with his children at his side. His ashes will be taken to France by his children and scattered on the beach in remembrance of the fallen war heroes.
Tommy, Gramps, Captain TAILOR/TAYLOR, will forever be our Canadian hero. He was brave, he suffered, he endured, but most of all he loved his family, his Friends, his school and his country.
Joanne OSBORNE, Virginia TAILOR/TAYLOR and Tom TAILOR/TAYLOR are Thomas's children, and Joann MAPLESDEN is his daughter-in-law.
